Testing these, it took me less than half my normal time to install and hang equipment as opposed to using cage nuts. And, thanks to Rackstuds, my vocabulary while I’m installing rack equipment will stay G-rated! Rackstuds especially shined in a rack that only has one rack unit space left and I needed to fit something into it.
So far I’m pretty impressed! I’m not the most graceful guy and have a history of damaging my thumbs getting cage nuts into racks. These appear to be a much better solution and they work great in the APC rack we have here in the office. Thanks for making such a handy product!
I received them and they fit perfectly!!!! I also had a Network Engineer use the Rackstuds that you sent to me and he was amazed how well they worked. Great job. I am going to show them to all the people I can here and hope they take off!
Used these for a few years. F$#%#$% genius to the men that invented them. Not great for big servers or APC's, but I’ve used them for network gear, shelves to hold 1-2u servers, and even 1-2u servers themselves. They make racking a breeze.
The Rackstuds that we have are working great, we haven't had any issues. In fact, just wanted to thank you for such an amazing product. We started using them a couple months ago and I'm not exaggerating when I say they've changed our lives (well, maybe a little, sure feels that way though).
Such a great design, you've saved countless fingers from cage nut injuries and countless heads from someone dropping a switch on themselves while they try and install it at the top of a rack. I showed them to a few Comcast techs who came to install their gear last week, they immediately called up their manager and demanded they start buying in those in place of cage nuts.
I've been using "bloody" cage nuts for over 40 years, or even worse, tapped holes. Rackstuds would have saved so much grief !! They will be my new standard, and will be spec'd into every project from here on.
Just wondering if there are any of the new 2.7 Rackstuds available anywhere in NZ? Please don't make me use standard cage nuts. Now I've used Rackstuds I swear by them. If there are any I can buy, beg, steal, trade, swap for beer, or name my first born after that is due in December please let me know.
Bryan (soon to loose skin off his fingers, knuckles and swear lots while putting this rack together).
Could you please send me a couple of sample packs of the rack studs? I’ve given all mine away (I only had 4 of the red ones). Personally I think these are the greatest things since sliced bread! Great product. Everybody I show them to loves them.

Your product is Awesome. I was watching a YouTube video over at Crosstalk solutions and came across your product and ordered some. I’ve used them in a couple of installs now and will be using them exclusively from now on. It is great to find another kiwi company taking on the world.

The blue ones we got worked perfectly - thanks. We originally bought the red ones, not knowing the specifics on the rack type in our new COLO. I knew there was a possibility they would not work. They didn't but the blue ones worked. We do enough rack work that we will keep both bags in case we run into racks that can use the red ones. We love the product - You guys are pure genius! My knuckles thank you 😉
